School plan delayed

05 Oct 2017

The master plan for the Docklands primary school is still to be released.

A Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) representative told the April 26 Docklands Community Forum that a high-level master plan would be developed after community engagement and would take three months.

The VSBA spokesperson told the forum: “We’re currently in the master-planning phase which takes approximately three months.”

Community workshops and consultations were completed on May 22.

Docklands News contacted the Education Department in July and was told the master plan was still in the early stages. The same thing happened in August.

A department spokesperson last month told Docklands News the master plan would be developed from June until late 2017, as per the VSBA’s website.

The spokesperson denied the school master plan had been delayed and said: “There is no delay to the Docklands Primary School, with master planning now finalised and currently being prepared for public release.”

The full context of the VSBA representative’s undertaking to the April 26 forum was: “We’re currently in the master-planning phase which takes approximately three months. That plans the location of the key buildings and the types of buildings to be delivered on the school site. And then we move into a more detailed design phase, which will be more the architectural drawings, which will then inform the construction process. And that detailed design phase normally takes nine months.
